    I agree about him wanting an Oscar. I strongly suspect someone helped him with his speech at the SAG awards last year. It wasn’t as rambling as the one he gave at the Golden Globes.

    That’s ridiculous, nobody helped him with his speeches, the guy just says what he’s thinking in that moment.

    Campaign is not necessary when you’re a veteran in a widely seen BP nominee or your performance is undeniable.

    People like Andra Day and Vanessa Kirby wouldn’t have been nominated if they hadn’t campaigned a lot.

    To be fair, no one has been able to campaign properly this year.

    McDormand’s movie is the best picture and director front runner and she’s the entire reason for that.

    Sure. Chloé Zhao’s direction, not to mention screenplay, had nothing to do with it. McDormand was just great, but you don’t need to minimize the work of others to make that point.

    Who hired Zhao sir? McDormand picked and financially backed her collaborator. Her Oscar win for acting is also acknowledgement of this.

    Nomadland would never have won Best Picture without McDormand’s multiple contributions, but she is not, as you wrote, the ”entire reason” the film won BP; film-making is a collaborative process, and the Director and Screenwriter are obviously key contributors to the success of the movie. Frances McDormand would probably be embarrassed by your take.

    McDormand is a legend and proves that you don’t have to do those awkward roundtable talks or go to idiot late night shows (like imbecile Colbert calling Isabelle Huppert, the french Meryl Streep).

    She’s above all that and I’m proud of it, as a fan.

    I do think McDormand was going to win a 3rd acting Oscar but I did not know this soon.

    It seems No Campaigning only works with Legends. Young women need to be campaigning A LOT. I remember DiCaprio campaigned TOO MUCH for his Oscar.

    Mark Rylance also managed to win Best Supporting Actor for Bridge of Spies back in 2015 despite not having done any campaigning at all.

    He was the biggest legend in theater. Again, it seems No Campaigning only works with Legends
